Bachelor of Science Degree Program: Aviation Management

The Aviation Management program combines general academic preparation with the development of business management skills and the specialized knowledge of the unique aspects of aviation business. Graduates of this program will have skills in communications, quantitative reasoning, and critical thinking; the understanding of general business practices; and the knowledge of the aviation industry.

Program Objective

Students in the Aviation Management degree program pursue tracks designed for work in the general aviation industry, the airline industry or at airports. Typically, graduates begin at entry level operations positions and use their educational qualifications and backgrounds to move into jobs with supervisory responsibilities or staff positions. In addition, graduates have the general education and business background to make them particularly well qualified for master's degree programs in business, public administration, or law.

The Aviation Management major prepares students for careers in a wide variety of fields, and includes specialized courses and experiences that enhance the student's opportunities for entry into the aviation field. This is accomplished by strongly emphasizing the importance of general education as well as a core of traditional business courses, and then complementing these with courses and experiences in the aviation industry that help the graduate to quickly become a productive member of an aviation organization.

Program Learning Outcomes:

Upon completion of the Aviation Management degree program, graduates should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of and be able to apply the fundamental aeronautical skills necessary to function as a manager in the aviation industry.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of and be able to use the business tools, skills and concepts to address practical business problems in the aviation industry
  • Demonstrate an understanding of and be able to apply aviation safety issues in all problem solving exercises.

All Aviation Management majors must complete the aviation core courses. In addition, each student will select a track that consists of 12 credit hours of course work that prepares one for entry into a particular segment of the aviation industry and a three-credit culminating experience. The culminating experience is a course or internship designed to: expose the student to problems and situations that will be intellectually stimulating; require the application of their knowledge, values, skills, and technical competence to current problems in the aviation industry; enable one to start developing a network of contacts within the industry; and provide feedback to the aviation division on how well the program goals are being achieved. The tracks that are available and the courses that qualify as culminating experiences are listed at the end of the curriculum.
